ODC Glass Roofs & Rooflights – Enhance any space
Our glass roof systems are ideal for flat or pitched roof extensions and wintergardens. With mono, double pitched and hipped designs you can have a glass roof of specific and unique construction.
We offer bespoke flat glass rooflights and roof lantern structures, as well as opening rooflights, all with slim contemporary aluminium frames.
As specialists in bespoke architectural glazing, we design, manufacture and install custom-made glass roofs for extensions, atriums and wintergardens. Combined with glass curtain walling, sliding or bifold doors, a glass roof creates a spectacular glazed feature in any home.
ODC mono and double-pitched multi-section roofs will form sloping roofs of glass, designed to span an entire extension or covered walkway. They can incorporate opening roof sections for ventilation, and combine with our bifolding and sliding door systems to form complete glass structures.

ODC ROOFLIGHTS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You can install a rooflight under your Permitted Development rights as long as it does not project more than 15cm from the roof slope. If the rooflight extends forward of the roof plane on the elevation fronting a highway then it’s not allowed under Permitted Development. If you live in a conservation area, then you may be required to install conservation rooflights, but it’s always best to check with your local authority before you begin.
Kitchens and rooms with lots of direct light benefit from ventilated systems. Rooflights with trickle vents allow a small amount of air movement. Opening rooflights with manual or electric controls give you more flexible ventilation options and can be fitted with opening sashes, climate control and rain sensors. Little and often is our advice when ensuring your home is well-ventilated; windows with trickle vents allow fresh air flow in a room and keep moisture build up to a minimum.
If your glass roof or rooflight is south-facing, you may want to upgrade to glass with a solar-control coating which effectively blocks about 99% of UV rays. ODC Solar Control Glass will protect your interior finishes from sun fade and reduce the cost of air-conditioning for an area of a home with large glass elevations.
